GREAT!!

"This is another great display of talent by Neurosis. Continue the trip in your mind and look into your soul and see all the ugliness that exists."

"Most of the things I wanted to say about this album were already said by Avi Roig in his review; One of my favorite Neurosis releases, with a simpler sound, less production. The bass is much further up front in the mix and in the arrangements, evidence of their large-looming Rudimentary Peni influence, I think. The only difference in our views is that I think that this album represents their "awkward in between stage," not Souls At Zero. Pain of Mind (1st album) had a much more straight forward hardcore approach, while I thought Souls (3rd album) was the first album with their "new" approach, the heavy, overwhelming, apocalyptic sound. Word As Law is somewhere between them. I can imagine the first two albums would be a little shocking to fans who got into Neurosis' newer stuff.

The only thing I don't like about this CD is that it doesn't include the Abberation EP, a phenomenal 7 inch that came between Pain and Word. It should be here and it's a real pity it isn't."
Great band, great album...

"I saw these guys perform several times at Gilman in Berkeley around 90-91 and they were probably one of the best bands that played there at that time. This album remind me of early Danzig because the guitars on this album sound heavy,unsettling and 'evil', which is a good thing! Their cover of Day Of The Lords by Joy Division is probably one of the best Joy Division covers ever made. They made the song sound even more disturbing than the original, which is actually quite an accomplishment!"
